More about James Middleton and his Boomf
The old office of Boomf was in the same place as his home entertainment company, Party Pieces. The latter was founded by his mother Carole 32 years back in her kitchen. This is near their family home situated in Bucklebury. But now, Boomf has expanded and needed more space. It started with manufacturing personalised marshmallows. But now it also creates other novelties such as Boomf Bomb and balloon pets. Boomf Bomb is an explosive photo card which rains confetti.
‘We are continuing to grow,’
‘I’m now working on a new company which will launch next year,’
This is his close-to-heart project since it includes his dogs whom he credits for helping him overcome his depression.
